Get public IP address using trusted APIs in React Native.


npm install react-native-check-ip


import { getIp } from 'react-native-check-ip';

// ...
const result = await getIp();


Parameter Support Type
message Returns success message or error message explaining the reason. Android/IOS String
ipv4 Returns a public or local ipv4. Android/IOS String
isError Returns positive if there was an error to obtain the public ip. Android/IOS Boolean
isPublicIp Returns true if the ipv4 is a public ip, this only occurs if no errors have occurred. Android/IOS Boolean
isLocalIp Returns true if the ipv4 is a local ip, this only occurs if it has not been possible to obtain the public ip using all the apis + retry. Android/IOS Boolean
origin Returns who was responsible for providing ipv4. This can be AWS, IPIFY or Local (In case there was an error and ipv4 is localhost) Android/IOS String


This lib tries to get public ipv4 using two public apis, having the AWS api as a priority and IPIFY as a secondary one, if both return an error or are unavailable, a new attempt will be made by calling the AWS API again. If all calls result in errors, Localhost IPv4 ( is returned.

In the future we can add new APIs as a fallback, but we must always guarantee the highest availability rate and use APIs without usage limits.
